Mayer News for 11-1

Happy Halloween
Because some of my readers will get the papers on Monday and Wednesday, I want to wish all of the ghosts and goblins a Happy Halloween. Motorists, please watch out for Trick or Treaters as they cross the busy streets seeking their candy treats.

Zion Turkey Dinner
On Nov. 11, a turkey dinner and silent auction will be held as part of the 100-year celebration at Zion Lutheran School. Advance sale tickets for the dinner may be purchased at the school office Monday through Friday. Tickets will be $2 more if bought at the door. Donations for the silent auction are now being accepted.

Senior Pot Luck

The meal will be served at 11:30 a.m. Bunco will be played after the meal, with your departure time about 1:30 p.m. Plan on coming for the meal and for good fellowship with your friends and neighbors.

More numbers fun
When I can’t sleep at night, strange thoughts go through my head. Since I like paying with numbers, the flowing came to mind. A few weeks ago I wrote that our daughter Laura celebrated her 30th birthday. That number has a lot to do with what I thought of next. When I was 30 years old I started writing for the Carver County News and the Waconia Patriot as the Mayer correspondent. I have held this position for 44 years, But, when I was 44 years old, I gave birth to our daughter, Laura, who is now 30.
